JOSM Preset tag: Highway=road, really

When typing in the JOSM preset search (F3) and key road the result is the screen selection below. The highlighted “Unknown Type” which leads to the tag generation of highway=road. TagInfo shows this having has been applied 75 thousand times, but has no text explaining what it is.

IIRC ID or StreetComplete complain about this tag and JOSM pops the “unspecific highway type” warning, the chronology actually showing the number is reducing from a high of near 500 thousand i.e. is being corrected. Maybe the JOSM preset should be fixed to highway=unclassified?
